The ADA sink has been designed in accordance with the American Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. It is specifically designed to accommodate people in wheelchairs to ensure that they have access to hot and cold running water any where any time they need it.
ADA Portable Sink: Designed to Comply with the ADA Standards
The ADA calls for designing and manufacturing of products that allow people with physical disabilities people to have equal access to all public goods and services. The law calls for inclusion of at least one feature in various products that make it easy for handicapped or disabled persons to use them.
Sinks are essential components of kitchens, bathrooms, public toilets, salons, hospitals, nursing homes, barber shops and health care centers. Since they are frequently used, they need to be designed in such a manner that they are not only convenient but also easy to use. The height, width, material and components of the various types of sinks need to be decided keeping in the mind the requirements of people with physical disabilities. An ADA Portable sink is perfect for both people with and without physical disabilities.
